We’re big fans of Supermicro here at eTeknix, as their experience in creating enterprise solutions means they have great experience in building reliable and well-engineered hardware. Of course, they make consumer-friendly products too, and while they’re not the biggest known name, they’re worthy of your attention.
Their new X299 motherboard can drive up to a 300W TDP chip, perfect for the flagship X299 X-Series of processors. It comes with robust VRM cooling, armoured PCIe lanes, and memory slots, and huge heatsinks on the M.2 mounts for optimal performance.
Another entry for X299 fans, a little more stripped down aesthetically, but it has all the right hardware in the right places. This is a fantastically durable and functional board. With armoured slots, reliable power delivery hardware, and a freaking massive VRM cooler for the CPU. This is perfect for those who love to overclock.
Their first Intel 8th Generation Mini-ITX motherboard, packing RGB LED lighting and tuned for the demanding needs of the gaming market. Even though it’s a tiny board, it still packs armoured slots, chunky power delivery hardware, and a robust design that we’ve come to expect from Supermicro.
For the mainstream gaming market, their CG-L promises all the essential features for overclocking, good audio and gaming performance. Like the Mini-ITX model, it’s also been extensively tested for maximum reliability.
Care more about workstation performance than gaming? Enter the X11SRA. Their latest high-performance workstation motherboard supports the new Xeon W processors. Furthermore, there are 8 x DIMM slots, 3 x PCIe x16 slots, and plenty of M.2 drives. Of course, it’s been designed with round the clock reliability in mind, making it perfect for content creators.
Of course, we’ll have reviews of many of these products in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more information!
